Has anyone still gotten  BFP after having OHSS just suddenly disappear in the middle of their 2ww???? It's driving me crazy that I feel no symptoms at all and I am 8dp3dt.


I had OHSS right after Retrieval and all the way through ET and then a couple days after ET it just started clearing up right away until I felt perfect normal.

I had some cramps from 5dpt - 7dpt and now at 8dpt I feel Nothing!!!!

Cramps from 5dpt - 7dpt could have been implantation cramping!!  I was having some symptoms after retrieval until shortly after transfer as well, and drank a bunch of coconut water and Gatorade and got lots of rest, and then I felt some cramping and what felt like a stitch in my abdomen around the same time you said you felt crampy!  A lot of women don't feel any cramping or symptoms so try not to worry!  I know, it's so hard when you can't tell what's going on inside your body!  When's your beta?  Will you be doing an hpt?  I feel like my early pregnancy signs fluctuate - one day my boobs are sore and today, they're not, but I had my strongest positive yet this morning - and yet today feels like the least of the symptoms.  So don't worry, everybody is different and some of the things you're "supposed" to have, like implantation bleeding, is really not that common.  Good luck!!!

I have a son from my second round of IVF in 2013, he is the light of my life!

Nobody told me I had OHSS but I definitely had some mild symptoms during the first part of my 2ww and after ER.  It sort of tapered off and I felt pretty normal and then around 11dp3dt I started feeling sick...I was constantly bloated with indigestion and so thirsty and just didn't feel right.  I phoned the nurses line and they told me to take a hpt and it was a bfp.  So for me it sorta of went away and then came back.  Good luck to you!!

I hope you're BFP, but believe me be thankful if your OHSS goes away before you get pregnant. 

I had severe OHSS and ended up in the hospital for over a month. They had to aspirate me 5 times, 3-5L each time. It was crazy painful and pregnancy was what made me develop it and what made it so severe. 

Me - now 36 Him - 37
Trying to conceive since our wedding day May 25, 2008.
Started Clomid Jan-April 2012.
Referred to RFP June 2012.
First consult at RFP November 2012.
First IVF cycle on antagonist protocol (GonalF, Luveris) January 2013.
Transferred two day-3 embryos, had severe OHSS, lost one twin between 7-13 weeks but was expecting one little one October 2013.
Found out at 6 mos that our little one had died weeks earlier and had to induce and deliver stillborn, July 25, 2013.
Something found on adrenal gland at follow up ultrasound, MRI showed what seems to be a benign tumor. Meeting with specialist Jan 8, 2014 - all fertility treatments on hold. :/
Tumour is definitely producing Aldosterone (causes high blood pressure) and Cortisol. Lucky me, only 34 similar cases recorded in the world! Tumour removed May 2014.
Approached about a possible adoption March 2014. Rush through all the paperwork and process.

Surprise BFP October 2014. Due to wonky cycles, ultrasounds convince Doctors I have a blighted ovum but detailed ultrasound reveals heartbeat at 6w3d. On progesterone support and waiting to see if pregnancy is still viable. Holding our breath again.

Thanks for the replies girls and congrats to those of you who have gotten your BFP.


I'm trying m y best to keep my hopes up.


My Beta is scheduled for Thursday. I don't think i'm going to take a test before unless I get some kind of symptom to lead me to believe I may be pregnant. I don't want the disappointment just yet.


My boobs were super sore last week too and that has completely disappeared too. I have some pulling feelings going on in my lower abdomen now and this faint headache that won't go away. Sorta like I get every month before AF shows.


It's so hard to remain positive when I feel like i'm just going to start my period. I guess that's one good sign so far though is that I haven't had any spotting or anything yet. I just hope at least AF stays away to give me that little bit of hope!

I didn't feel any pregnancy symptoms and was actually pretty sure that we were out until about 11dpt when I started bloating up pretty quickly. I took a test 6dpt and it was bfn so I was in no rush to get my beta and hear it was negative. I got a great beta report at 15dpt and again at 17 dpt. I didn't experience any symptoms aside from bloating until around six weeks, and even still all is tolerable. Nobody wants rough pregnancy, especially after all we've done to get here. Try to remember that you aren't out until you get a negative beta at 14dpt. Good luck!

Thanks girls, I guess i'm just freaking cause its getting so close to my beta. I go this Thursday. My fingers are crossed but i'm just so nervous!

I have every single symptom of AF coming not pregnancy. I am a little bloated, headaches, cramps and broke out in pimples over the past couple days, grumpy, irritable...

This is harder then I ever thought it would be. I had so much hope going into this and its crazy that I could be so close to it all ending in a couple days. That's the hardest to wrap my finger around. I know I shouldn't be giving up hope yet but i'm sure you all know how difficult this is to maintain a positive outlook!!!

My ohss symptoms came back in full force in my 6th week, just don't overdue it. Ohss came back the end of my first day after returing to work, ended up being off another 3 weeks due to ohss. Pregancy increased the symptoms/pain.  Take it easy, eat drink what the dr tells you, you really don't want to end up in the hospital.

Hi carson2010-- I was in danger of OHSS due to my estrogen levels were so high before ER. I was prescribed Dostinex to start with my HCG shot. The nurse at my ET said to start watching for symptoms again 10-14 days after ET if I get a positive on my pregnancy test. As a side note...I did my 3dt two days before you but I don't go for my pregnancy test until Sept 7th (two days after yours). Clinics are so different.

Congratz on the BFP :-)   Just keep an eye on your symptoms, as your pregnancy progresses it's possible you could develop OHSS again since your ovaries haven't recovered yet and you still have the follicles there.

I was anxiously following along these posts - I had I guess mild OHSS which really flared up on the HcG shot, then resoled 4 days post 5dt...some other mild "symptoms" but was sure it was BFN and just had the first blood test today 12DPT and got a BFP. Fingers crossed...
